He’s nothing resembling a reporter. And he’s a major contributor to — or, perhaps more accurately, manifestation of — the death of actual news. If he called himself a pundit, he’d merely be a left-winger. But he fancies himself a reporter and, therefore, he’s an idiot.
If the press declares itself an adversary of the White House and if it acts as an adversary — as it has a First Amendment right to do — such members of the media are no more entitled to the run of the West Wing than would be a member of Congress who regularly attacks the president.
Bill O’Reilly: CNN and most of the national media are no longer in business to bring information to Americans, their game plan now is to destroy the Trump presidency. It’s an ongoing news reality saga designed to get ratings and circulation: can the media bring down Trump?
Jim Acosta is not being denied his right to say or write whatever he wants. Acosta is being denied the privilege of speaking to the president and members of his administration because of his outrageous and boorish behavior.
Roger Stone: Despite almost two years of being under intense microscopic investigation…including the federal surveillance of me during the 2016 presidential campaign, there is still no evidence of Russian collusion, Wikileaks collaboration or evidence that I knew the source or content of the allegedly stolen or hacked emails published by Wikileaks. Enough already.
The adage "with age comes wisdom" is biblically based and objectively observable -- except, perhaps, in the case of Pelosi and her old-guard Democrats. They have invited all types of radicals into their coalition, so they can hardly complain when the fruit of their poisonous tree begins to blossom.
Laura Ingraham: The Democrats should've seen the Avenatti flameout coming a mile away. A guy who tried to cheat his law partner, in a million in fees, a guy who is evicted from his own offices, who is willing to cast his lot with a sad figure like Stormy Daniels. A guy who stooped even lower to peddle Julie Swetnick's false and frankly defamatory claims against Kavanaugh.
Florida parents are furious after their children were shown a graphic, Planned Parenthood sex-ed video without their consent. The video, shown to seniors at Pine View High School, included same-sex couples making out and a man grabbing a woman’s breast.
To celebrate “Trans Awareness Week,” abortion giant Planned Parenthood has released seven linguistic tips to help individuals use terms that will not offend members of the LGBTQ “community.”…Thus, the self-anointed language police have determined that “boys and girls” should give way to the more generic “children,” while “his or her” should now be the more capacious (but numerically suspect) “their.”
How do people find fulfillment if they don’t have religion, a sense of community, or a family? Hopefully by devoting their life to finding a way to ship mouthwash to people’s doors for ten cents cheaper.
David Solway: Our writing culture has for the most part continued its descent into the politically correct dementia of our historical moment, the latest instance being the pronominal madness that has swept through the universities and entered the larger society.
President Donald Trump sat down for a wide-ranging interview Wednesday with The Daily Caller to cover the immediate policy future of his tenure since the end of the midterms. Major topics included the professional fates of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and CNN reporter Jim Acosta, the Florida recounts, Amazon and the violent Antifa group.
In sharp contrast, all three broadcast news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) managed to get the news of Avenatti’s arrest packaged and ready to go for their 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. programs (respectively). CBS Evening News even led with the arrest.
Avenatti’s wife's face “swollen and bruised” when she complained to police.
Roger Simon: Who is profiteering off the grandstanding of Acosta and others? It's not the American people -- that's for sure. It's the major media companies (ABC, CBS, etc.) who, acting as monopolies in a cartel of sorts, get maximum exposure -- mostly to the exclusion of everybody else -- and therefore increased revenue.
Instead of writing about the limousine liberals who are so rich they make the Trump cabinet look like a bunch of paupers, the press has been obsessing about how a newly elected congresswoman from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, can’t afford to rent a place in Washington until she starts collecting her congressional salary.
Actress Bette Midler smeared Melania Trump Wednesday, posting an old modeling photo of the First Lady and labeling her “FLOTITS.” “The dry cleaning bill for the upholstery on Air Force One must be insane. FLOTITS.” Bette Midler wrote in a social media post including a photo of Ms. Trump from when she was a model.
Looking past the fact that Tapper and his panel have no idea of the backstory at play here, it’s not like first ladies don’t wield significant influence…The only difference is that when it’s a Democrat, the first lady is propped up in the media as a strong, independent woman.
If Trump set out to hurt blacks by pushing economic policies that helped reduce black unemployment to an all-time low; by attempting to stop unskilled illegal alien workers from competing with unskilled blacks for jobs; and by empowering inner-city black parents…to pick the school for their children, then Trump needs to go back to racism school.
Laura Ingraham: Tuesday was orientation day on Capitol Hill for new members of Congress. But for Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership, the new class is turning out to be more than they bargained for.
Don’t bother reading the underlying rules on conflict of interest, because there’s only one test that matters: Would the recusal help get Trump?
Smith’s low number among Republicans is in all likelihood tied to his somewhat regular attacks on President Donald Trump, including accusing him of being a liar and trading in racism.
Maria Lisante owns the La Bella Pizza Bistro in the patriotic town of New Paltz, New York…But the other day – protestors defaced the mural. They said the flag was offensive and that it represented a negative political perspective.
